Abstract
We present uncooled, fiber-coupled InGaAs photodiode modules for DC to 18 GHz applications that generate broadband linear RF signal with peak-to-peak output amplitude up to 4 Vpp and phase nonlinearity, i.e. power-to-phase conversion factor <6 rad/W. The photodiode’s phase nonlinearity approaches zero for selected operating conditions, as needed for generating precision clocks. The photodiodes demonstrate reliable operation up to a DC photocurrent of 50 mA at 9 V reverse bias at ambient room temperature of 20 °C with passive heat sinking. The photodiodes are packaged in miniature, fiber-pigtailed modules having a size, weight, and power (SWaP) that is suitable for phased array systems.
